Farmer tries to commit suicide inside bank premises

A farmer tried to commit suicide inside the premises of a bank today after he was allegedly denied a crop loan, police said. Farmer Madhukar Sudham Aher (48) consumed poison and was rushed first to the Pachod rural health centre and then to the Government Medical College and Hospital where doctors termed his condition as critical, an official said.

The incident happened in a Central Bank of India branch in Paithan tehsil in Aurangabad in the afternoon today, a Pachod police official informed.

The bank's branch manager, R P Mishra, later told reporters that the farmer had been given a loan earlier but he had defaulted on the repayment. Mishra said that Aher had been called to the bank today to arrive at a settlement on the unpaid loan by way of a part payment.

"But he consumed poison soon after arriving at the bank," Mishra said.
